Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Dynamic shadows disappear near from other meshes

Hi there,
I've got a movable mesh that casts shadows from 3 movable pointlights, but it's dynamic shadows seems to disappeaur when the mesh is near from another one.
I've set scalability to Cinematic, tried with either 1, 2 or 3 pointlights, the result is the same. Both material and mesh are two-sided.

See attached pic, the mesh with normal shadows at a certain distance from the ground scene, and the same mesh less far from the ground.

I've resolved the issue by setting "Shadow Resolution Scale" up to 5 (instead of 1) and forcing the scalability setting on beginplay by launching the command "Scalability 4".
